Not true for Manhattanite Elizabeth Scott. Instead of planning a walk down the aisle, she's crossing the pond with the only companion she needs; her darling dog, Bliss. Caring for a pack of show dogs in England seems the perfect distraction from the scandal that ruined her teaching career, and her reputation, in New York. What she doesn't count on is an unstoppable attraction to billionaire dog breeder Donovan Darcy. The London tycoon's a little bit arrogant, a whole lot sexy, and the chemistry between them is disarming. When passion is finally unleashed, might Elizabeth hope to take home more than a blue ribbon?
Elizabeth Scott's life is going down the toilet, and the only thing she has going for her at the moment is her pride and joy, Bliss. So while her life may be crashing and burning, at least she can forget it all while showing off Bliss in her first dog show. Donovan Darcy is outrageously rich and embodies everything we as readers love about Jane's Mr. Darcy. He's surly and misunderstood, but beneath the surface he's packing a lot of passion and a kindness that will make you swoon.
Donovan and Elizabeth meet at the dog show he's judging, and right from the start they just click... and get on each others nerves. This is where the fun begins. Luckily for them both Lizzy and Mr. Darcy live on completely different continents, but when a well meaning matchmaker spots the fireworks flaring around these two while they go head to head in verbal combat, the distance ends up not being great after all.
I don't want to spoil the fun by telling you everything that happens, but I don't think you'll be disappointed. Teri Wilson writes with a sure hand and captures the essence of Ms. Austen's characters that make them so memorable while making them her own. This was a great book and I think you'll like it to, but know that even though it's not a "sexy, steamy" read, you won't be left wanting for romance. It's all there, and I loved watching Lizzy and Donovan connect, bicker, fight, and make up.
